Yup… It’s National Child Passenger Safety Week again.
Don’t worry I’m not to go write a huge post or go on about ERF or EH again… Everyone knows how I feel about that, and honestly (gasp) at this point I don’t think it’s quite as important. Did I really just say that?
What I am going to say:
1. Use the carseat… Very very few things really upset me when I see someone parenting differently than me, but seeing a child in a car without a seat is one of them that will do it. Worse yet… an infant. Yes some of us survived without one… but we either weren’t in an accident (raises hand) or were incredibly lucky. And if you can’t afford one there are lots of places that give out good seats for free…
Apologies for tone on that one, but I’ve seen it a lot lately and like I said its one of a few things that really gets to me…
2. Please read your manual and use them correctly. Straps and chest clips… I know they’re easier to put in when the straps are loose and it looks more comfortable, but it won’t be in an accident. And chest clips should be pretty self explanatory… of course I’ve done that one too so obviously not 😉
3. Another one I’m extremely guilty of doing in the past… shopping carts. If you’re going to use the carrier in one remember it needs to go in the basket not on the front. Is so common to see them up there, but babies have been hurt and killed that way. They aren’t meant to sit there.
That’s it… all I’m going to say about car seats this week 🙂 You know… unless you’re on my FB page because I’m seeing too many good posts that I can’t help but share. Just be glad I’m not sharing every single one of them lol.
